My Daily Digg Disappointment (71) Tuesday
Thanks to Jacob G. for the Full Metal Jacket idea. lol
Good morning fellow Diggers!
It's somewhat overcast after some overnight rain. Not much rain, but it's cooler than normal for a June day in Texas. I really don't know where to start but I had an idea of possibly doing a YouTube very soon and reporting from my work. Nothing fancy but to give you an idea of my morning routine when I first get to the office.
As I was driving to work this morning, I got to thinking how we Diggers shun new friends or new fans. I have to admit that I think there is something that can be improved with Digg in that regard. Because of the shout feature on Digg, we can only shout 200 Friends at one time (that's assuming the friend is accepting shouts). So the natural tendency is for established Digg users that have their 200 friends to not accept new people as friends. I don't like that. Being the type of person I am, I want to include any and all fans as friends. There may be another Brian Cuban out there. So my thing is, I would rather have friends than be able to shout my submissions. So I'm going to extend my hand in friendship to any and all fans. But it also means you must digg my shouts if you expect me to digg yours. Trust me, I will be monitoring that too. I don't have time for one-way friendships. To my current friends, continue to shout me and I'll continue to shout your stories. No worries.
Now, let's see what shouts we have today.
Big news I think. There is a new search engine among us!
